What kind of privileges require GitProtect.io from Github?

GitProtect.io requests the minimal set of GitHub permissions to connect and run backups. It requires read-only permissions to the data limited to those resources that are intended to be protected by the software.

We will ask you to give us following permissions:

  • Read all user profile data,
  • Full control of private repositories,
  • Access user email addresses (read-only),
  • Update Github action workflows

The company's mission for over 10 years has been data protection of customers, therefore the application does not store this data, and the permissions are used only to connect with the GitHub organization while performing a backup.

The GitProtect.io can not use those permissions for any other action than only protecting the GitHub repositories and metadata in the way intended by the user.
